Bubblegone - Somewhere Between Summer and Winter [kpu089]
Bubblegone began as an experiment in a new medium for an artist who had not yet found a voice. The medium of experimental ambient noise allowed him to create something that flowed and had the same color and texture as his thoughts and feelings. Bubblegone is one artist who performs solo and often collaborates with other musicians.

Artistically, bubblegoneÃÂÃÂs main focus in audio experimentation is to put thoughts and feelings into an audio context. His performances and recorded pieces are reflections of our internal dialogues and processes we hold inside of ourselves. Pieces are performed in a stream of consciousness style where the searching and the finding of feelings can be heard. This search sometimes crescendos into great epiphanies and sometimes into personal realizations.
Much of the sound bubblegone works with is from the environment around him. Sampled sound is recorded, manipulated, heard, and sampled again to cycle back into the performance. This process is a reflection of humans as living beings taking in stimuli, processing it, and re-experiencing it throughout their lives.
Additionally, throughout the performed pieces there is an underlying bed of noise. The constant ever changing sound becomes the focus and at other times is barely noticeable. Noise is the continuous stimuli around us and in us. It can distract, calm, or simply be.
